He’s been playing through something for a while—probably won’t hear anything more until Tuesday.

have been taking measures to address fatigue this weekend as they took Tuesday off from hitting on the ice, Cal Dietz is on the trip as well to help with recovery. A win tonight would go a long ways toward getting home ice in the B10, I think 36 pts should do it.

McManus banged up last night didn't return after the first, replaced by Marooney who will be the extra skater. Phillips picked up a knock as well and replaced by Stucker which will make happy to tune in tonight at 5 PM Central on BTN. Robson will get the start.

If they do make it... how fast will the committee pair them with SCSU in Fargo?

are playing for home ice in B10 playoffs, which will be important because their only chance to make NCAAs will be to win the league tournament.

Motzko said they're sticking to their plan of playing Mat Robson tonight--said at the start they went with a two goalie rotation and Robson emerged as the starter. Hoping to rotate goalies rest of the way and let one emerge for the playoffs.

Motzko was on BtP w/ -- talked about how are 5-2-2 against top teams in B10, those teams play more predictable games and fits nicely into his team's strengths. Expects tight game again needs good goaltending and special teams.

goaltending and depth aren’t the problem, who are the scoring prospects identified that fit as trade targets?

Latest goalie commit Jack LaFontaine said fellow Mississauga native Mat Robson told him that was the best place to play on the ice and away from the rink, and that has great coaches where he'll get an opportunity.

No changes to forwards or defensemen in the lineup tonight from last Sat vs PSU, but the BMW line is back together, and Novak-McManus are with Reedy tonight. Schierhorn is expected to start according to and is listed first on the line chart.

Keeping shape will be key against Ohio State tonight, as they're one of the best puck possession teams in college hockey. Defenders can't drift too far from outside the dots/home plate if they're not going into a winnable 1v1.

I don't think we'll see Ohio State forecheck as aggressively as Penn State did last weekend, but puck retrievals need to be cleaner and same rules apply around the net if the puck is turned over.

will need to be more disciplined defensively this weekend as well. While they've been close to being in the right areas, they need to make sure they get on the right side of their checks, numbers to goalie and stick on stick.
